Anyone notice a decline in Costco quality, especially in the tools section?
It used to be that I could buy multiple rolls of duct tape or 3M blue
masking tape for a great price. That stuff is no longer carried. Not to
mention the air nailers, etc. I could go on about stuff, but it seems that
most of the stuff they carry now is junk.
Maybe some of it's a result of the declining dollar.
I have 3 Costcos within about 5 miles. All three carry different range of
stock. One store may carry a high end tool, the other 2 don't. Basically it
is all up to the store management, if something or a category sells well,
they carry it, otherwise they drop it and don't even bring more into the
No problems here. Very satisfied. But I rarely buy tools there.
They tend to have the big sets, most of which I have. If I need a
tool, it's usually a single special one I'm after.
